vided with water in camp. But our enjoyment of this luxury was short-lived, for in two days we were ordered out from our cool retreat to go, no one knew whither. Rumor sent us in various directions: a trip to the Shenandoah Valley looked the most plausible, for Gen. Lee, wishing to relieve the pressure upon him by our army, thought that by detaching a corps to menace Washington, the authorities of that city would be seized with such trepidation as would compel Grant to send a large part of Meade's army to protect it, and possibly would result in raising the siege of Petersburg. Life and Campaigns of IX. E. Lce, p. 544. McCabe. In accordance with this theory, about the 1st of July, he dispatched Gen. Early's corps in that direction, which resulted, as is well known, in exciting quite a commotion in the capital city, and Grant sent the Sixth Corps to meet the emergency. We were evidently not included in any party destined for detached service just then, and after moving up toward

Mott's Division was put in motion for the White Oak Road. and a brigade of cavalry sent down to relieve Egan in order that he might follow Mott. At this juncture, 1 P. M., Meade ordered a halt. Egan pressed the enemy across the Run. Meade soon arrived on the field. Egan was now ordered to deploy to the right, to connect with the Fifth Corps, which was moving this way.

Meanwhile the enemy was not idle. He placed nine guns in front of Egan on the north bank of the Run, and five more about eight hundred yards from Egan's left on the White Oak Road, from which he opened a very annoying artillery fire. Beck, with four guns, replied gallantly. . . . More important events directed my attention from this point, though Granger's Battery, Tenth Massachusetts, was sent forward to relieve Beck, that the latter might replenish his ammunition. . . . .

But the powers had ordered otherwise, and the same day that he left us Major Gen. A. A. Humphreys, late Gen. Meade's chief-of-staff, took command of the corps. Brig. Gen. A. S. Webb succeeded Gen. Humphreys as Gen. Meade's chief-of-staff. Thursday, December 8th, we were relieved by the Eleventh New York Battery, and ordered to take the position vacatGen. Meade's chief-of-staff. Thursday, December 8th, we were relieved by the Eleventh New York Battery, and ordered to take the position vacated by them in the rear line, about a mile distant, and south of Poplar Spring (Grove?) Church. This exchange was said to have been made to enable us to participate in a projected movement. So we took what we hoped was temporary possession of barn-like quarters left by our predecessors, to pass the night and await the next turn of the wheel. It came the ensuing day in the shape of orders to join the First Division of the Sixth Corps at dusk. Our division (Third) moved to Hatcher's Run on t

Meade, yet pale with an illness that had confined him to his ambulance for some days, but now his face wore a smile, and he whe roadside nearer and nearer until we were swept in with the rest, willy, nilly, as by a tempest.

His short, stubby body, rigidly perpendicular with short, stubby legs projecting stiffly at right angles with his body the whole decorated with his scarlet Zouave uniform made a figure decidedly picturesque. Yet he was a good soldier withal, and popular with his command. Under this tree which stands in the angle of the Plank and Dabney roads, I saw Generals Grant, Meade, and Hancock holding a conference. It ought to be marked for the information of tourists. But no, that would ensure its destruction. Opposite the Dabney Road, in this clearing, was the second position taken by the Battery which Gen. Walker in his history of the Corps has omitted from his map of the field, presumably because it is not found on the memory sketch of Col.. Morgan, Hancock's Chief-of-Staff. Yet here fell Lieut.
